#52favorites Project

Hi everyone!  Paper Issues has a fun weekly challenge this year called #52favorites.  It's such a neat idea - pick your favorite memory from the week and get it down in some creative way.  I decided to play along and my focus will be on Miss Piper.  It's really hard for me to choose a favorite photo/memory of her from each week, but I'm going to try!  :o)

I think this is the perfect project since I'm not even going to attempt Project Life this year.  I just can't.  I know I wouldn't be able to keep up with at this time.  But this project is something that I can do!  And it's perfect for if I don't have time to make a whole layout, but still want to get a bit of creative play in.

I just knocked out the first 2 weeks and I used the Tales & Dreams line from Pretty Little Studio.  I kept my designs fairly simple and similar.  I imagine that I will continue to carry this template throughout the entire project, but I'm not totally sure yet.  Here's what I've got:


I'm going to keeping all my little layouts in a fun planner binder that I found in the Dollar Spot at Target.  I'm not a planner girl, but the size and format works perfectly for this project!

Thanks for stopping in!!

Desert Beauty

Woohoo!  I scrapped for fun!  I scrapped for fun!  

For Christmas my Dad gave me a bunch of pretty, new paper products, including the Basics paper pad from Illustrated Faith/Bella Blvd.  When I saw the cacti paper, I knew I had to use it to scrap some of the photos from Piper's newborn photo shoot.

I combined this paper with a bunch of other Bella products from my stash.  I think I have 4 or 5 different collections represented on this layout :o)


I'm really loving this color combo...remind me to scrap for fun more often :o)

Fun Together || Pretty Little Studio

Good morning everyone!  Just popping in to share my newest layout made with the GORGEOUS Tales & Dreams collection that is up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today.  The colors in this collection are just fabulous.
For today's layout I decided to scrap a photo of my daughter and my niece in matching outfits.  This collection complements their dresses well so it was perfect to use.

I kept my design simple and tried to make my photo the main focus of the spread.  Here is the final product:
Thanks so much for visiting today!

Details || Color Cast Designs

Hi everyone!!  I recently created a new layout for Color Cast Designs using the "About Me" acrylic set from their December release.  I decided to focus on my girl and some of her month 4 highlights.  I used the beautiful Zoey kit from Felicity Jane to create this:

I've seen a lot of torn paper on layouts recently, so I decided to give it a go and use some torn paper on my layout.  I really like how it looks.  I may be doing this again soon!

Thanks for popping in!

Four Months || Pretty Little Studio

Good evening everyone!  Every month I make a double page layout that highlights some of my favorite moments from my daughter's month.  For this layout I picked out the blues and reds from the Tales & Dreams collection from Pretty Little Studio to focus on the four-month spread.

All the elements from this collection are a lot of fun.  I pulled out the tags and diecut words to embellish this spread.

Here is the final result:
